    I needed a can of SCM for homemade coffee creamer and didn’t have one, I made this. I made it to the letter of this recipe and it was AMAZING! I added the other ingredients for my creamer to it and it is the only one I am going to use now.
    Thank you!

    And if you keep going, continuing to stir frequently, you have … Dulce de Leche.

    No need to put a can in a pot and hope it doesn’t blow up on you this way.

    Ok, I’m going to go get a spoon now and take a dip into the jar of dulce I havei n the fridge that is calling for my attention. 🙂
